$20 Per Month; Else Lose the Blue Tick Subscription: Report

Want to get a verified account on Twitter? You may want to read this. The micro blogging platform is reportedly planning to charge its users to get a verified account.

Just days after the Tesla chief took over Twitter, Elon Musk is reportedly working towards some major changes. The change hovers over the BLUE TICK- reports hint the elite subscription will reportedly be paid and Musk also plans to hike the subscription prices considerably.

Speculations are that Musk plans to charge users $19.99 for the new Twitter Blue subscription. Furthermore, Twitter accounts that already have the verification, will have to comply with this new rule and pay up for the blue tick. The report suggests that verified users will have a total 90 days to move to Twitter Blue or they will end up losing their checkmark. Additionally, Twitter employees have been asked to move fast on this new subscription plan or pack and leave. The employees have been given a deadline of November 7, according to the report.

It is not even a week since Musk formally acquired Twitter, though he has already fired some key players. The list includes former CEO Parag Agrawal, who took the role in late November last year. Other notable figures, such as Twitter CFO Ned Segal and policy chief Vijaya Gadda have also been laid off.

Twitter Blue was introduced last year and it is an opt-in, paid monthly subscription that offers exclusive access to premium features. Twitter claims this will let you customize your Twitter experience. The subscription service has been launched in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand
